Alicia Keys spent her son's birthday trying to make a difference.
She and her husband, Swizz Beatz led a protest for the ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ campaign at the Nigerian Consulate in NYC.
They were joined by more than 30 others on the 6-month anniversary of the girls’ abduction and demanded that they be returned alive by the Boko Haram militants who kidnapped them from their school.
“Today is my son’s birthday and it is also making me stand in solidarity with all the mothers of the Chibok girls who have been abducted for six months and are still missing. And it is just outrageous that that’s going on,” she told the NYPost.
“Some people have even told me they've heard things about ‘there’s been progress,’ but there hasn't been progress because the girls aren't back,. So I think that we get mixed information. We don’t know, so we just have to keep being made aware of what’s happening.”
